FDA WEBINAR March 12, 2010

We are a group of six women including a mother whose daughter died after receiving the Gardasil vaccine and another whose daughter suffered adverse reactions. Over the last three to four years we have offered our time to research, educate and communicate the potential dangers of the HPV vaccines. We represent a growing global community of parents, journalists, and researchers who are dedicating energy, time and knowledge to assist those families desperate to understand what happened to their daughters, and to bring out the truth about Gardasil and Cervarix so there will be “one less” instead of “one more” innocent victim. We speak on behalf of families around the world to bring justice to the thousands of adversely injured girls and the estimated hundreds of girls who have died from Gardasil and Cervarix.

There are thousands of concerned parents with tens of thousands of questions Seven are addressed in this presentation and are substantiated with research and data. I. My daughter is now sick after the HPV vaccination and has warts on her hands and feet. Is HPV really only an STD? II. My daughter has received an irregular pap test two years after the vaccinations. I thought the vaccine was supposed to prevent this? III. Why is my daughter so ill now when she was always so healthy before the vaccination? IV. After reporting my daughters reactions to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System) I became curious to see how many other girls are like my daughter. There are so many I am now afraid my daughter will not get better. V. I am 18 and my friends and I got the shots. Why did I get an autoimmune disorder and they did not? VI. VII. How does the side effects my daughter is experiencing compare with other children? Why did my daughter die?

Global Parental Concerns
The international stories, spreadsheet and graphs that have been prepared represent a sample of the injuries occurring to adolescent girls globally. When reading the many reports of girls adversely affected it becomes quickly evident that the symptoms they are experiencing are part of a pattern of events that are similar wherever the HPV vaccines are administered around the world. The handouts and in particular the graphs demonstrate this very point.

Gardasil and Cervarix Synopsis
Cervical cancer is an important public health problem in the United States, with 9,710 new cervical cancer cases and 3,700 deaths due to cervical cancer projected for 2006(1). Cervical cancer has been associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Merck, Inc., began a clinical development program in 1997 with a recombinant HPV virus-like particle (VLP) vaccine for the prevention of cervical cancer. pg.8 Reviewer’s Comment: In all analyses, there is a positive impact in prevention of these dysplasias in those who have not been exposed to the relevant HPV type … pg. 29

Gardasil and Cervarix Synopsis
Cervarix Cervarix is intended for the vaccination of girls and women 10-25 years of age for the prevention of the following diseases caused by HPV types 16 and 18 included in the vaccine: • Cervical cancer • Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or worse and adenocarcinoma in situ • Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 1, pg.14 Biological changes in the cervix around the time of puberty render young girls particularly susceptible to HPV infection [Moscicki, 2005]. This period coincides with the initiation of sexual activity, which is considered an important factor in the acquisition of oncogenic HPV infection. To achieve the maximum benefit from a prophylactic vaccine, vaccination should occur before sexual debut. Pg. 42

HPV Transmission in Infants and Children
Studies regarding HPV Contact
Cadernos De Saude Publica, Rio deJaniero, 21(4): 1006-1015, jul-ago, 2005 http://www.scielo.br/pdf/csp/v21n4/03.pdf Although epidemiological trials suggest the possibility of non-sexual transmission, there is evidence of vertical transmission, presumably occurring during passage of the fetus through an infected birth canal. The virus could also be transmitted by ascending infection, principally after premature rupture of membranes. Pg. 1006 Acta Microbiologica et Immunologica Hungarica 48(3-4) pp 511-517 (2001) http://www.akademiai.com/content/h32q968j22183585/ Introduction of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) revealed that HPV infections are much more common among young asymptomatic women than it had been previously suspected. The side-specificity of genital HPVs led to the assumption that HPVs were primarily transmitted by sexual contact. However, since HPVs have been detected in virgins, infants/children and juvenile laryngeal papillomatosis was shown to be caused by these viruses, it became acknowledged that HPVs may be transmitted by other – non-sexual – routes as well. Pg. 511

HPV Transmission in Infants and Children
Studies regarding HPV Contact
Journal of Clinical Microbiology, January 2005, p. 376-381, Vol. 43, No. 1 http://jcm.asm.org/cgi/reprint/43/1/376 … nonsexual modes of HPV transmission also have to be considered. These include vertical transmission from parents to infants, horizontal transmission from other family members and those in close contact with the child, autoinoculation from one site to another, and possibly indirect transmission via fomites. Journal of Medical Virology, Vol 61 issue 1, pp 70-75 (2000) http://cat.inist.fr/?aModele=afficheN&cpsidt=1403036 Before immunisation programmes can be designed, however, it is necessary to know the age of acquisition and all routes of infection for these viruses. Sexual transmission is well documented and vertical transmission has also been demonstrated, although the frequency of transmission remains controversial. We previously showed that vertical transmission frequently results in persistent infection, and now present data on the prevalence of HPV-16 DNA (the most prevalent high-risk HPV type) in healthy children. Journal of Medical Virology, Vol 71 issue 4, pages 593-598 (2003) http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/106056791/abstract It is concluded that HPV-16 DNA in the oral cavities of children is a transient event and is most probably acquired from their peers.

Post Vaccine Global Parental Concerns
II. My daughter has received an irregular pap test two years after the vaccination series. I thought the vaccine was supposed to prevent this?
By sledmom | Reply | (2) replies | Private Message me January 2th 2009 8:20 AM A good friend of mine, a person I have known for 30 years, told me yesterday that her son's girlfriend, a college student, had surgery over the Christmas break for cervical cancer. This is her second surgery, and both surgeries were paid for by the manufacturer of Guardasil. By paying for these surgeries, it seems clear that the company is accepting responsibility for what happened to her. Apparently, because this girl had a weak immune system, Guardasil actually caused the very thing it was intended to prevent--cervical cancer. Neither my friend nor I had never heard anything like this before, and I am wondering if others know of girls who have actually gotten cervical cancer after receiving Guardasil. According to the National Vaccine Information Center there are 272 events with Vaccine that is HPV or HPV4 and Symptom is Smear cervix abnormal

Does HPV screening take place before vaccination? No screening takes place prior vaccination with either of the HPV vaccines!
"In June 2009, representatives from the Society, ACOG (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists), and approximately 25 other organizations met to discuss cervical screening and management for adolescents. There was general consensus that new screening guidelines should recommend against adolescent screening and that screening should begin at age 21," said Saslow. "The Society will formally review the evidence and update our cervical cancer screening recommendations in the coming year." *

Diurnal Profiles of Testosterone and Pituitary Hormones Suggest Different Mechanisms for Menstrual Disturbances in Endurance Athletes
We found that 24-h profiles of testosterone, LH, and PRL were positively correlated and cortisol negatively correlated with the number of menstruations during the last year in these athletes. However, the endocrine profiles in amenorrheic and oligomenorrheic athletes were apparently different. Amenorrehic athletes displayed a hormonal pattern in agreement with hypothalamic inhibition. In contrast, oligomenorrheic athletes had higher 24-h secretion of testosterone than all other groups.

Demographics of Girls Affected by Adverse Reactions Studies of Female Athletes
THE IMPORTANCE OF HORMONES IN FEMALE ATHLETIC COMPETITION* The pre-event rise in males averages nine percent whereas in females it increases by twenty-four percent. During the competition itself women increase their testosterone production by fortynine percent while in males it increases on average fifteen percent. "We are not sure why women's testosterone elevation prior to competition is so much greater than it is in men. It is probably due to the fact that every day levels of testosterone are four times higher in men than they are in women. To effectively meet the challenge a higher production rate may be necessary," explains Dr. Alan Booth, Distinguished Professor of Sociology, Human Development and Family Studies, and Demography at Pennsylvania State University. "Among women, pre-game testosterone increases were significantly correlated with reports of being focused just prior to the game, just as it is associated with arousal in men," Booth says. "Unlike pre-game increases in men, the pre-game increase among women was unrelated to the perceptions of how easy or difficult the opponent was thought to be prior to the game. Men seem to adjust their pregame rise to the perceived strength of the opponent."

Link Between Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Obesity Involves Insulin *
Hyperinsulinemia also stimulates the ovaries to make more male hormones (testosterone and androstenedione) and lowers the liver’s ability to clear these hormones from the blood. Higher blood levels of male hormones contribute to PCOS symptoms including acne, malepattern hair growth (on face or body) or balding, and lack of ovulation.

“It’s All In Your Head”
Endocrine-disrupting chemicals can undermine neurological and behavioral development
My daughter had 2 Gardasil vaccines and approximately a year later has tested positive for high-risk HPV. We also believe that her HPV is the result of the vaccines because: she did not have HPV when she received the vaccines; she suffered SEVERE side effects from them which incapacitated her for 2 1/2 months; and she continues to experience menstrual problems even though it has been over a year. Now the news that she has precancerous, high-risk HPV.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome – Infertility - Occurrence of Cervical Lesions – Hair Loss
New evidence is especially worrisome because it underscores the exquisite sensitivity of the developing nervous system to chemical perturbations that result in functional abnormalities. Moreover, the consequences of these perturbations depend upon the stage of development during which exposure occurs and are expressed in different ways at different times in life, from birth through to advanced age. Because the endocrine system is sensitive to perturbation, it is a likely target for disturbance. In contrast to natural hormones found in animals and plants, some of the components and by-products of many manufactured organic compounds that interfere with the endocrine system are persistent and undergo biomagnification in the food web, which makes them of greater concern as endocrine disruptors.

Luteinizing hormone provides a causal mechanism for mercury associated disease

Previous studies have demonstrated that the pituitary is a main target for inorganic mercury (I-Hg) deposition and accumulation within the brain. My recent study of the US population (1999–2006) has uncovered a significant, inverse relationship between chronic mercury exposure and levels of luteinizing hormone (LH). This association with LH signifies more than its presumed role as bioindicator for pituitary neurosecretion and function.

Brief Assessment of Aluminum Exposure and Endocrine System

It is thought that inflammation resulting from aluminum exposure may induce learning and memory deficits [39]. Certainly, targeted effects on the endocrine system may affect immune-modulation and produce a pro-inflammatory cascade that responds to targeted aluminum deposition in the hippocampus with resultant neurotoxicity.

Heavy Metals and Fertility

Thus, the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis can be affected by heavy metals either directly or indirectly through modifications of the secretion of prolactin, adrenocortical steroidsor thyroid hormones. In the ovary itself, accumulation of heavy metals impairs the production of estradiol and progesterone.

Hormone Allergy

Many disorders have been associated with menstrual cycle influences, including acne, asthma, hereditary angioedema, apthous ulcers, Behc¸et syndrome, porphyria, epilepsy, myasthenia gravis, allergic rhinitis and migraines.1–10 A recent review of autoimmune progesterone dermatitis11 describes an allergic reaction to progesterone that can lead to severe dermatitis and anaphylaxis. Geber12 described the first documented case of cyclic urticaria associated withthe menstrual cycle in 1921. He suggested a terminology of hormone allergy after demonstrating a flare in the disease by administering the patient’s own pre-menstrual serum.1

Immunological Adjuvants and Vaccines

…it has now been revealed that it is the aluminum which is put into vaccines as an adjuvant which causes production of IgE…the antibody of allergy and anaphylactic shock.

Histamine Metabolism During the Menstrual Cycle

At mid cycle an increase in the urinary excretion of histamine metabolites was sometimes evident and a statistically significant correlation could be established between MeHi and estrogen in urine. These results may support previous findings of histamine release by estrogens in uterine tissue but may also reflect an elevated histamine formation. The allergic woman excreted constantly increased amounts of histamine and its metabolites, especially when her allergic symptoms became aggravated premenstrually.

Gardasil Girls give the Silent Faces of Autism a Voice

Vaccinations, cytokine storms, and autism http://www.generationrescue.org/binstock/090711-autism-by-cytokinestorms.htm
The CDC's list of vaccination side-effects (3) seems based upon individual vaccines. As reported by many parents of autistic children who regressed after vaccination episode, the mild, moderate, and supposedly "rare" side effects of vaccinations resemble post-vaccinal symptoms manifested by their child. Apparently not addressed by the CDC's list of adverse effects of individual vaccinations is whether or not a child who is injected with multiple vaccines during one incident is more likely (a) to experience one or more of the side effects, (b) to develop a more severe reaction (eg, fever related to seizures), or (c) to develop symptoms consistent with vascular pathology or brain damage. Examining specific vaccine's side effects (4) offers clues regarding what might be more likely to occur in some individuals when, for instance, the DTaP, MMR, and another "routine" vaccine are injected during the same incident.

Post Vaccine Global Parental Concerns
VII. Why did my daughter die?
One less daughter, one less sister, one less aunt, one less niece, one less student, one less future wife, one less future mother; one less woman who will make a difference.
64 deaths reported in VAERS 17,400 adverse affects ONE LESS! .................................................................... -Shanna Jojola, sister of Megan

Not a day goes by that our family does not mourn the loss of our beautiful daughter, Megan Hild. My oldest daughter, Shanna is traumatized by the fact that she encouraged Megan to get Gardasil. I will not live with a cause of death unknown on her autopsy report. I will not tolerate the “expert’s” who told me that Megan was ready to leave this life. I spoke with my daughter two hours before she died. She was vibrant, beautiful, healthy and embraced her life, her future – her family and her boyfriend. Do not forget the guilt, grief and loss that the families are left with. They are the ones who carry the burden of a life unnecessarily taken or a daughter damaged from the HPV vaccines.

Autopsy Report – 18 year old female
1. “There was biventricular cardiomegaly” 2. “There was transmural replacement of myocytes by fibro-fatty tissue in the right ventricular wall” 3. “There was also diffuse variable myocyte hypertrophy”

ARVD – Arrhymogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia*
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Is a cardiomyopathy (a disease of the cardiac muscle cells) Affects about 1/5000 people Is a known cause of sudden cardiac death in young people Many cases of death occur in the home during sedentary activities Symptoms - Abdominal pain, Decreased exercise tolerance, Dizziness, Dyspnea ‘difficulty breathing’ (especially with exertion), Fatigue, Mental confusion, Palpitations, Syncope or fainting

The Problem
“Because of the extensive tissue degeneration that had occurred prior to autopsy, some of these diagnostic findings could not be definitively identified.” “Other main diagnostic criteria can only be assessed in living patients.”

L-histidine , Histamine and the Heart
L-Histidine is an amino acid from which Histamine is derived. L-Histidine is an amino acid that the human body cannot manufacture, hence, it must be obtained from your diet. When released from mast cells, histamine causes vasodilation (relaxation or dilation of the blood vessel walls). “Dr. Levi adds that it is important to put the relationship between arrhythmia and histamine in perspective. Severe arrhythmias can also result from the release of large amounts of histamine that occurs when there is a massive allergic reaction, such as anaphylaxis. This is because too much histamine stimulates the heart's H2-receptors, which tends to cause arrhythmia. In most myocardial ischemia, only a small amount of histamine is released in the heart”(1) “In 1959, Prinzmetal et al described a syndrome of chest pain at rest secondary to myocardial ischemia associated with ST-segment elevation.1 Exercise tolerance was characteristically normal in these individuals, who experienced a cyclical pain pattern with most episodes occurring in the early morning hours. This syndrome, known as Prinzmetal or variant angina, is due to focal coronary artery vasospasm and may be associated with acute myocardial infarction (MI), serious ventricular arrhythmias, and sudden death.” (2)

Myocardial Ischemia
Myocardial ischemia develops when coronary blood flow becomes inadequate to meet myocardial oxygen demand. This causes myocardial cells to switch from aerobic to anaerobic metabolism, with a progressive impairment of metabolic, mechanical, and electrical functions. Angina pectoris is the most common clinical manifestation of myocardial ischemia. It is caused by chemical and mechanical stimulation of sensory afferent nerve endings in the coronary vessels and myocardium. These nerve fibers extend from the first to fourth thoracic spinal nerves, ascending via the spinal cord to the thalamus, and from there to the cerebral cortex. Myocardial ischemia can result from (1) a reduction of coronary blood flow caused by fixed and/or dynamic epicardial coronary artery (i.e., conductive vessel) stenosis, (2) abnormal constriction or deficient relaxation of coronary microcirculation (ie, resistance vessels), or (3) reduced oxygencarrying capacity of the blood. (1) “Collectively, our findings emphasize the multiplicity of protective roles played by H3R activation in the setting of myocardial ischemia. Because excess norepinephrine release can trigger severe arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death, negative modulation of norepinephrine release by H3R agonists may offer a novel therapeutic approach to myocardial ischemia. “ (2)

Immune System Reaction - IgE
•HPV protocol requires that the vaccine be administered as a series of three shots. This is called challenge and re-challenge.* •The only immune response cell that is monitored is the IgG antibody which is the most common. •The IgE antibody** is not monitored and is known to be the most damaging to the body.

What we do know
1. VAERS reports after June 2006 show that the HPV vaccines comprise 27% of all vaccine adverse events. 2. There are reports of auto-immune disease such as ALS, MS, etc. 3. Young girls and women are experiencing adverse events months to years after the initial vaccinations. 4. Immune response has been studied for at least 36 months with a slow decline in antibodies. Based on this, efficacy is expected to last 5 – 7 years.

Re-challenge – Re-challenge is the re-introduction of a treatment, which is then associated with the same or a similar AE, and is a good indication of causation. An AE that does not recur can signal a lack of causation, but it might also indicate that tolerance has developed. Because just the potential association of a treatment and an adverse reaction may pre-effect its re-introduction (re-administration of penicillin to a person with a history would be ill-advised, for example), it is not always possible to use a re-challenge test on a patient.

** IgE binds to basophils (a type of white blood cell) in the bloodstream and mast cells in tissues. When basophils or mast cells with IgE bound to them encounter allergens (antigens that cause allergic reactions), they release substances (such as histamine) that cause inflammation and damage surrounding tissues. Thus, IgE is the only class of antibody that often seems to do more harm than good.

“Cardiac ischemia happens when an artery leading to the heart becomes narrowed or blocked for a short time and oxygen-rich blood cannot reach your heart. In most cases of ischemia, this temporary blood shortage to the heart causes pain in the chest (called angina pectoris). In certain other cases, there is no pain. These cases are called silent ischemia.” http://www.texasheart.org/HIC/Topics/Cond/Cardiomyopathy.cfm
NEW YORK (Dec 20, 2001) “When a heart attack strikes, the nerve endings in the heart release excessive amounts of the neurotransmitter noradrenaline, leading to arrhythmias, or disturbances of the heartbeat, with sometimes fatal consequences. In a just-published article in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, two scientists at Weill Cornell Medical College—Drs. Roberto Levi and Randi Silver—report on studies showing how the activation of a histamine receptor, the H3-receptor, limits this release of noradrenaline via two independent systems, based on the intracellular concentrations of calcium and sodium.” http://nyp.org/news/hospital/histamine-receptor-activation.html “…the fact that the histamine system constitutes one of the most important brain-activating systems and that H3 receptors regulate the activity of histamine and other neurotransmitter systems. Furthermore, the H3 receptor shows functional constitutive activity, polymorphisms in humans and rodents with a differential distribution of splice variants in the CNS, and potential coupling to different intracellular signal transduction mechanisms.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15530639 British Heart Journal, 1979, 41, 426-432, Coronary artery vasospasm: the likely immediate cause of acute myocardial infarction - “Heberden, who first described angina, to consider it as spasmodic. In his Commentaries (1802), he emphasized the character of the attack, the relation to emotional factors, and the occurrence of chest pain at rest.

“Histamine is synthesized in all tissues, but is particularly abundant in skin, lung and gastrointestinal tract. Mast cells, which are present in many tissues, are a prominent source of histamine, but histamine is also secreted by a number of other immune cells. Mast cells have surface receptors that bind immunoglobulin E, and when antigen crosslinks IgE on the mast cell surface, they respond by secreting histamine, along with a variety of other bioactive mediators.” http://www.vivo.colostate.edu/hbooks/pathphys/endocrine/otherendo/histamine.html
Histamine Receptors – “Histamine mediates numerous biological activities stimulated by various immunological and non-immunological stimuli, through differential expression of H1-4 on effectors’s cells, such as mast cells and basophils. Histamine has a critical role in immunomodulation and allergic diseases. Other biological activities include cell proliferation, differentiation, hematopoiesis, embryonic development, regeneration, wound healing, aminergic neurotransmission, secretion of pituitary hormones and regulation of gastrointestinal and circulatory functions.” http://www.tocris.com/pharmacologicalBrowser.php?ItemId=5011

There are several physiological issues that are responsible for the dramatic increase in adverse event reports for the HPV vaccines.
During the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle, the production of estrogen releases histamine. During the luteal phase the protective effects of estradiol sharply decline, the production of progesterone increases and the immune system becomes more easily compromised; succumbing to the overdose of histamine from three sources: L-Histidine in the vaccine, increased amounts of estradiol in the body from natural production plus environmental toxins (estrogen mimickers) and the body’s own natural production of histamine. Both HPV vaccines are VLP’s (virus like particles). This can be termed ‘molecular mimicry’ and when an antigen in a vaccine is structurally similar to an antigen in the host antibodies are produced that react with the host’s normal tissue. Allergy sufferers with moderate to severe asthma have IgE levels greater than 1,000 U/ml. Normal serum IgE levels in individuals without allergies is less than 70 U/ml. An increase in IgE means more free IgE is available for binding to the activated mast cells. More mast cell activation and degranulation may lead to an increased release of inflammatory histamine. This reaction also leads to TH2 cytokine and leukotriene secretion, resulting in systemic anaphylaxis in the form of allergy. This proves an increased risk of injury due to an overload of histamine being released from the mast cells causing a more severe inflammatory response throughout the body. Tissue damage due to this process can cause hypertrophy of smooth muscles. Smooth muscles are evident in the heart. With the rechallenge to an already active immune response we could have more smooth muscle damage especially to the heart and Central Nervous System. With all our research completed, due to the lack of safety testing in regards to hormone, histamine and IgE level effects due to challenge and rechallenge on the female and male physiology the risks of the HPV vaccines outweigh the benefits.

Webinar Outcome
On behalf of the parents around the world we are asking that more studies be conducted on Gardasil and Cervarix before the vaccines are administered to more healthy, innocent young women and men. 1. Safety study of participants in regards to irregular pap tests and cervical lesions 2 - 4 years post-vaccination and to be performed by independent entity 2. Review of "new medical conditions" to see if they are resolved or intensified 3 - 4 years post-vaccination and to be performed by independent entity 3. Study on fertility of individuals reporting adverse events

4. Implementation of Menstrual Cycle Evaluation and Guidelines for vaccine administration for women between menarche and menopause 5. Implementation of additional guidelines to the approval process to include hormone, IgE and histamine levels to prove safety of product
